Dreamy Brooklyn Apartment

A few weeks ago on Refinery 29 they showcased Jane Herman's (Director of Concept at Gap) Brooklyn apartment. I have poured over these pictures so many times, I just love it. It's such a casual and inviting home. I love the neutral background with the use of coloured knick-knack's and flowers to add a little spice.

Stacks of books, bright pillows and throws, sentimental objects and colourful art play the starring role. I especially love the bar set-up and wish that I had one of my own - its nice and small, and I think I could find the space to do so. Most New York apartments really aren't big enough to swing a cat, let alone have the luxury of a bar. Herman proves that you don't need a lot of space to create a beautiful and welcoming home.

  1. Her apartment is amazing and provides inspiration for anyone living in a small urban space anywhere in the world. Very cool.

  2. I want her bookshelf...and obviously, her bar. So awesome!
